Certificate of Appropriateness Testimony
170 Joralemon Street aka 57 Livingston Street – Brooklyn Heights Historic District
CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATENESS
A transitional Greek Revival style rowhouse built in 1848 that forms part of a through‐block
school and courtyard complex, the Packer Collegiate Institute. Application is to construct an addition and reconfigure a courtyard.
While HDC is largely supportive of this sensitive addition, we find the window sizes to be somewhat out of scale with the size established by the garden house. We also find the transition from horizontally formatted fenestration on the west facade, to the more vertically themed fenestration on the south facade, to be a bit abrupt and awkward.
Determination: Unanimously Approved
